Las Vegas Aces

At the onset of the sports betting season, Las Vegas won four of its first six games. However, the Aces beat the WNBA lines only twice. Las Vegas’ slow start is indicative of the loss of betting value based on the public perceptions of its championship brand. A’ja Wilson leads the Aces with 26.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per contest. Wilson is a 2-time WNBA champion and was the 2023 WNBA Finals MVP. She was named WNBA MVP in 2020 and 2023. Additionally, Wilson is a 2-time WNBA Defensive Player of the Year and a 5-time WNBA All-Star.

Indiana Fever

First-round draft pick Caitlin Clark arrived at Indiana from Iowa, where she exploded on the national sports scene as a superstar. In turn, Clark is the biggest name in the WNBA, much to the resentment of most of the league. The WNBA has struggled to find attendance and TV ratings. However, Clark can change that. But the WNBA is going to have to protect her from the thuggery of knockdowns and pushing that she was subjected to in the first part of the season.

At the beginning of the season, the Fever lost eight of its first ten games. But they did get the money five times. Clark led the Fever with 16.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game.

Chicago Sky

While Caitlin Clark wears the white hat in the WNBA, her college rival Angel Reese proudly serves as the villain. Reese and Clark had a bitter rivalry in college basketball, at least from the perspective of Reese. Reese has deeply negative feelings about Clark, much as she pretends otherwise. She was thrilled when one of her Chicago teammates called Clark a profane name and body-checked her into the court.

Initially, Chicago won three of its first seven games but got the cash four times. Reese was averaging 10.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game.

Connecticut Sun

First overall in the early stages of the WNBA was the Connecticut Sun. Connecticut won its first seven games but got the cash only two times. Connecticut has been a strong WNBA team for several years and made the 2022 WNBA Finals. Namely, DeWanna Bonner was leading the Sun with 19.1 points per game.

The WNBA will draw more wagering action than at any time in its history. Whether the interest remains is entirely dependent upon Clark’s success.
